The movie follows the format of Sex is Zero that came out 5 years earlier. The movie this time is about women swimmers, and few men that intermingles along the way, making romance, and few sexual innuendos. Story flows lot smoother than the original Sex is Zero.
Many good looking Korean girls parade in swim suit in this movie. The format is similar to Sex is Zero, but the presentation is lot more refined in this movie. Each scene is beautifully shot, and is visually entertaining.
The comedy is great in this movie as well. Korean romantic comedy takes the genre to a next level in its funniness that's tied to their culture. It's more radical than any other Asian comedic movies.
I really liked this movie, and hope they'd come out with a third installment of the series.
